    Slightly warm, the pie is runny and sensuous. Chilled, it has the texture of gooey caramel.

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 (9 inch) partially baked flaky pie pastry



    1. 1
      Place the butter in the top of a double boiler; place over barely simmering water.
    2. 2
      Scatter the chocolate around the butter.
    3. 3
      Let the butter and chocolate stand for about 5 minutes, until melted, stirring once or twice once the melting is underway.
    4. 4
      Remove the top insert; whisk the mixture until smooth and set aside to cool briefly; whisk the mixture again until smooth.
    5. 5
      In a large mixing bowl, combine the sugar, cornmeal, and salt, tossing with your hands to mix.
    6. 6
      Add in the eggs, egg yolk, milk, and vanilla; whisk until well mixed.
    7. 7
      Pour the chocolate mixture into the bowl; whisk briefly until smooth.
    8. 8
      Pour filling into cooled pie shell.
    9. 9
      Place pie on the center oven rack in a 325° oven; bake 35-40 minutes, then rotate the pie 180°, so the part that faced the back of the oven now faces the front of the oven.
    10. 10
      Continue to bake about 20-25 more minutes or until the pie develops a uniformly thin upper crust.
    11. 11
      The entire top of the pie may puff up as a single piece, unlike many other egg-based pies, where just the edge alone will rise up.
    12. 12
      Place pie on a wire rack; let cool at least 1 1/2 hours.
    13. 13
      Serve slightly warm or at room temperature or cover loosely with foil, refrigerate, and serve cold.
